Nice game of +John Grümph ´s The Moon and the Lotus with +Tom McGrenery, +Jaye Foster and +Stuart Chaplin at today's Indie Meetup in Central.

Started in media res with pcs naked and bound. Weird sorcery gone wrong, astral creatures, tentacles and lots of fights. Good fun was had by all (I think). This really is my favourite "pick it off the shelf and run it" game.

The Mangrove's Mouth
Fuji XPro-2, 27mm, f/8, 1/60s, ISO 200

Langkawi's Bat Cave doesn't feature sleek black automobiles or bat-shaped weaponry, just hundreds upon hundreds of bats. The cave mouth open's directly on the Mangrove, and the stalactite there caught my eye. I like the contrast between the stone and the vibrant green of the mangrove itself.

Melancholy Monkey
Fuji XPro-2, 85mm, f/1.4, 1/1800s, ISO 200

There's something fascinating about monkeys, especially when they're just lying around like they own the place (which, to be fair, they do). It's hard not to project our own reading of facial expressions on their faces, wrong as that may be, hence the title here...

Overlooking the Islands
Fuji XPro-2, 80mm, f/8, 1/300s, ISO 200

From the top of the cable car station, you have a stunning 360 view on Langkawi and the surrounding islands. It was dusk when we were there, but there was something wonderfully melancholy about this blue on blue landscape.

Looking at Paradise
Fuji XPro-2, 27mm, f/8, 1/600s, ISO 200

As soon as I set foot on Pasir Tengkorak Beach on the Northern shore of Langkawi I knew I had to take a shot using those two branches to frame the island out at sea. I did several attempts, but the photo was missing something, I felt, so I asked my son to sit on the branch. I think this balances the composition nicely.

Not Made for Normal
Canon A2, 20mm, f/8, 1/60s, ISO 100

Film : Provia 100F

I've only recently started composing using wide-angle opportunities offered by street adverts. This one was shot during my film period after my digital camera got stolen and before my new digital camera was purchased.

Erhu in Central

Fuji Xpro-2, 85mm, f/1.4, 1/1800s, ISO 200
The Erhu is a Chinese violin that sounds atrocious to my European ears. But when you find an Erhu player on an overpass in Central and that he lets you take your time shooting a portrait, you can tolerate the sound for a few seconds, open nearly all the way to f/1.4 and get a nice bokeh in the background of your street portrait !

Japanese Glass
Fuji XPro-2, 30mm, f/8, 1/160s, ISO 200

Tai Hang is full of garages, and some of them are clearly more... specialized than others. I don't know what's so particular about the windshields of Japanese cars, but it looks like this guy has got you covered !

Mobile & Smoke
Fuji XPro-2, 85mm, f/4, 1/160s, ISO 200

While there isn't as much smoking in Hong Kong as there is in mainland China, it's still a smoking city, something which you see less and less in Europe. So forget about the coffee and mobile addictions, this is the real thing here!
